Southern/Central Marin County Real Estate Report December 2017

Single family home prices and numbers delivered a strong showing in Southern/Central Marin in November. Both were up from the dip we saw in September and October. Good news for home owners – both single family and condo sold prices are up over 9% year-on-year.

Looking to 2018, if the proposed tax changes go through, there is likely to be downward pressure on home prices, as buyers lose purchasing power through loss of full deductibility of state income and property taxes. Stay tuned for the final legislative outcome.
